^^ one reason not to hire someone are jokes made which imply workplace violence
I apologize if anyone has already addressed this: However, Id like to point out something that I learned some years ago and swear by today: there exists a fundamental differance between "concealed Carry" & "deep carry". "Concealed" can have provisions (either implied or explicit. employment, location, etc), "Deep" surpasses public provisions and is only subject to the carriers own comfort level.
"Deep" many times is synonymous with "back up" and tend to be very small in size and often caliber. I for one am a very strong advocate. Deep concealed allows for that level of comfort that one knows that there atleast exists somethng that may allow you to get to the next level of defense or stay alive. Ie: My employment forbids "Concealed Carry" (would rather pay the widows benefit than the potential liability), "Concealed Carry" may not be very practical laying on the couch watching a midnight movie in my bathrobe with the aforementioned wife. Same applicable with a job interview. "Deep Carry" on the other hand does not necessarily apply to the same conditions... as no one, but you (maybe the wife on the couch) knows or for that matter can detect that it even exists.
Just a thought...
I carry everywhere I go unless there are metal detectors Its cow so nobody knows I have it except me I would rather be safe then sorry
carrying my glock
yes i carry everywhere .. work .. walks at home.. shopping.. its like my skin..always on me..
carry on interviews
Yes i would and yes i did again today when i went to put in an application @ Old Dominion Freight, like i have said before "If You Carry Always Carry" and i carry each and every day, everywhere i go.
I like this post
During the interview process you are a guest. The potential employer needs to get to know you and you need to learn company policy. After the interview, if company policy is ok with carrying on the premises then I'd be ok with it.
Welcome to the Forum Blackie! Enjoy!
I always carry. I always carried for job interviews especially if you will be carrying on the job that you are applying for. Too many things may happen to & from the interview. (By the way got the job).
Yes I would
Funny, I interviewed today at a security company here in FL. I had some time to kill before the interview, so I went to the range. Not only did they know I was carrying, we were looking at my targets. The interviewer didn't seem concerned that I was carrying, and we spent most of the time talking about shooting.
Of course why not? I just did the other day and got hired. The employee hand book employees are not allowed to have weapons on company property including the parking lot. BUT I carry concealed and I do it correctly. So they won't ever know I have it unless they install metal detectors or someone comes in and forces me to defend myself or a fellow employee. I will be just fine getting fired after the fact. But I refuse becoming a victim because others are willing to.
Wouldn't this depend on WHAT one is interviewing for?
As a Registered Nurse I highly doubt carry a firearm to the interview would result in kudos....but then then times, they are a'changin'!
I absolutely would. You never know when you need it. It's always better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
yes i agree with you.. i carry at work as well.. i work the front desk at a hotel and you just never know!!
Words to live by.
I haven't but would have no problems doing it. My last interview was on the same day you could apply for your ccw. I saw the application on my now bosses desk and that was the first thing we talked about, even before we started the actual interview. We talked about glocks, concealing in general (because it was new to our state), the reasons he was not going to forbid concealing at work, and things like that. It was a great way to start off an interview
No I would not. My reasons are several. While I have a CCW and have no issues conceptually with carrying chances are good that you do not know the organization nor the staff for the position for which you are being interviewed. Not everyone in any organization is gun friendly and while you may have the right to carry legally ( maybe not depending on the company by policy) it may color the way you are seen for the position for which you are being interviewed. Obviously, there are some exceptions to this depending on the position applied for. Concealed carry could be seen on the job as a potential threat by potential coworkers as well as superiors as well as corporate management.Obviously, some employers and places of employment ( airports, bars, hi security areas, specific financial institutions including banks could post issues of carrying both by corporate policy as well as legal constraints.Working in law enforcement or security would clearly be exceptions to prohibition of concealed carry.
Unfortunately, being in Pre-Hospital emergency care, most providers frown upon earphones on their property, so I've never carried my CHL weapon on my person while going to an interview. I did accidentally carry once to an employee meeting, but snuck out, locked it up and returned when I realized (I shifted my weight onto it).
True, especially in the healthcare field. But at least the legislature here eliminated the ability of employers to zap you for having it properly and securely locked in you personal vehicle in the parking lot.
